We were celebrating family birthdays including Louis's 65th Birthday. We were somewhat apprehensive about renting from an internet site; however, our vacation turned out to be the best vacation ever! The beaches, restaurants & Villa expectations were just as Reed & Lisa described. We had a couple of instances of mechanical problems at the villa the first few days but they were remedied swiftly with no significant inconvenience. At first we were a little disappointed that we were told at the Villa Reception we could only have 2 confirmed dinner reservations during our 8 night stay; however, ultimately, with the help of Reed & Lisa, we did end up getting dinner reservations that we were very happy with for 5 nights during our 8 night stay. Our favorite restaurants were Simply Gourmet and Blue Lagoon. Our dinner celebration at the Blue Lagoon Tuesday night for Louis's birthday celebration was fabulous. The waiter and his help even brought out a birthday cake with sparklers and a musical performance which was a nice surprise to us all! Jeff was filling in for our Concierge who was off sick 5 of the 8 nights we were there, and Jeff had a birthday cake brought to the Villa on Sunday for my daughter's birthday which was very thoughtful. We had a blast at the Welcome Party on Sunday and the food variety was spectacular! We all loved Clara's breakfast every morning and she kept the villa picked up and clean so we gave her a well deserved tip & big hug on our last day!
We found ourselves at Serenity Beach most afternoons enjoying snorkeling and the most delicious crepes ever, but most mornings we ventured off to other beaches and adventures. I don't think we missed anything during our stay at Lifestyles. Our grandkids loved riding on the golf carts and swimming in the Villa pool. We also loved the half day waterfall tour and our grandchildren were stars of the dolphin show at Ocean World, picked out of everyone to participate in the show which was awesome.
We appreciate the prompt response by Reed & Lisa to all our questions and concerns during the planning and duration of our vacation. The gold bands are a must to a carefree enjoyable vacation. Thanks to both Reed & Lisa for your help in making this vacation one of the best family vacations of our lives. We to Lifestyle Vacations Resort again in the future by booking only through Lisa & Reed. I definitely recommend booking through Lisa & Reed to get the most of an unforgettable vacation.
